The Bristol Exchange’s Very Unusual Clock

Even if you look past its remarkable 18th-century architecture, the facade of the Corn Exchange building in Bristol, England has something worth noticing. If you’re fascinated by time-keeping and its history, it might even be the main attraction.

The old market building’s clock, installed originally in 1822, has two minute hands, just over 10 minutes apart, in order to show both Greenwich Mean Time and Bristol local time.
